Kay Felder, a guard for the Toronto Raptors' G-League affiliate, was arrested Monday morning after allegedly choking a woman over the weekend after an argument, according to TMZ Sports.
The report goes on to allege that Felder threatened the unnamed woman and choked her before authorities arrived on the scene.
"Raptors 905 guard Kay Felder was charged by police in connection with an allegation of domestic violence", the team said in a statement.

It has entered into joint ventures to boost its presence and capacity in Canada and overseas , including in Israel and Australia. Altria is in talks to acquire a stake in e-cigarette start-up Juul Labs Inc., according to reports by US media outlets.
Now Felder, who was drafted in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft, is making the news for all the wrong reasons. The Raptors waived him in October. He played in 58 career National Basketball Association games with teams, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, Chicago Bulls, and Detroit Pistons.
Boston Celtics guard Jabari Bird remains on the team's roster but has been placed on indefinite leave since his horrifying domestic violence arrest in September.
Felder himself has yet to comment on the situation.
Following a series of National Football League controversies and criticism of its own leniency, the NBA strengthened its domestic violence policy in the most recent collective bargaining agreement. The league reportedly won a resulting arbitration ruling against the union's objections to that warning. He's now released from custody but is due back in court later this month.
